I discovered that I wasn't using browns very much in my silk painting, so here tis. This is a quote about how important your name is and how your name makes you who you are. I added some quills to the ends. The quote defines the spaces for different colors. Sold.
My brother, Jack, takes a hike every week in CA. Then he sends amazing photos. I print them out with his permission and use them to create silk scarves. I had a lot of fun with all these images. Sold!
For a show we were asked to submit art with red, black and white colors. I took the challenge with a new 12 x 60" silk scarf. Lots of gold writing snuck into this design too. Some of the red turned more pink after steaming, but, all in all, it is a very nice scarf. Sold.
A new idea. Just put the detailed designs on the ends which will show more. The rest of the silk looks like the places the dragonflies have flown. This silk won An Award of Excellence in the Fond du Lac Artist Association show. Sold.
